I agree no one is paying much for Kane, but that amount of retention over 4 years, I doubt they eat that for no return.
The fact is, depending on how his legal issues work out, SJ could be allowed to release him (ala Mike Richards, Voynov) and therefore owe no salary, so I dont think they retain for nothing, they''ll retain for something, as theyre really in no hurry because theyre rebuilding.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Hammerwise</b></div><div>Those are weak offers.
I dont think either is enough, especially with the retention.
Maybe instead of SDA you offer Amirov AND instead of Ritchie (who I doubt ANA wants back at 2.5mil) you offer Kerfoot. But I still think its a weak offer even then.
Mikheyev, especially on IR, has no value, as hes a 27 yr old UFA who isn;t that good. So its Leddy and retention for a 2nd a year away?
(You can;t retain 500k on a 1mil player I dont think, and you're over the cap, leaving you with a paper thin 19 skater team and still not made the bottom 6 forwards any better)</div></div>
I agree with some of this but honestly, I think the Anaheim trade is pretty good.
The Leafs bolster their lineup with another forward that can play in the top-6 while Anaheim gets a 1st, a decent prospect, and an NHL-ready defenseman. That's a lot for a rental piece.
But yeah, Deslauriers should be taken out (I get why you put him in though) and I doubt Detroit is looking for a UFA winger as part of a deal for a rental
